en moviment 1 Vinyes Velles Garnatxa Blanca 2018

The first of the range’s four single-vineyard wines, the En Moviment 1 is a complex orange wine made with old vine Garnatxa blanca from a very small plot in the Comes d’en Bonet, to the northeast of Gandesa. Fermented with wild yeasts with 28 days on its skins and partially under flor, it is an authentic example of Brisat wine, a traditional style of skin-contact wines from the Terra Alta and Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Akin to the amber wines of Northeastern Italy and Slovenia and known for its extended macerations, the style fell out of grace during the past century as consumers demanded lighter, but is now making a comeback thanks in no small part to the efforts of winemakers like Pili Sanmartín. Fruit-forward. Very expressive nose of peach, apricot, orange, notes of dry herbs and sweet spices (cinnamon). Quite dry, with fine-grained tannins and a full palate. Slightly bitter finish. — 12 days ago

Las 30 del Cuadrado Cepas Viejas Palomino 2016

Saline ocean breeze, with a touch of orange citrus. This wine is so interesting and delicious. Had a lot of Manzanilla Sherry elements, but had some orange wine notes that make it really user friendly. Damn good juice! — 2 months ago

en moviment 2 Vinyes Velles Macabeu 2018

The funkiest wine in the lineup, En Moviment 2 is made with Macabeu (aka Viura in Rioja), a sometimes neglected variety known for its high yields - especially in young vines- and relatively neutral flavor profile. One of the 3 main varieties in cava, it is often reserved for blends. This Macabeu is however sourced from old, low yielding vines planted in the 1940s on a small, terraced plot in Comes d’en Bonet, northeast of Gandesa. Fermented in stainless steel with 4 months of skin maceration (a traditional brisat, unfiltered skin contact). Medium copper hued. Fragrant. Aromas of citrus (tangerine, orange rind) and dry herbs. Quite fresh, good acidity, some spicy notes. Saline, with a nice slightly bitter finish — a month ago
